Rejoice O Israel lyrics. A song of prayer for Israel, Jerusalem and God’s people written by Karen Lim from the New Creation Worship in Singapore.

This song is inspired by Psalm 122:6-7.

6 Pray for the peace of Jerusalem. Those who love you will prosper. 7 Peace be within your walls, and prosperity within your palaces.

Psalm 122:6-7 WEB

As the church awaits the return of Jesus Christ, we continue to pray for peace in Jerusalem and Israel. We pray that our Heavenly Father’s favour shine upon the nation of Israel.

Lyrics for Rejoice O Israel

I behold a city on a hill
A nation torn by war
But in that place
Adonai says His grace has been poured forth

I behold a people
Who are waiting for their Lord
For He will come with trumpets sound
As nations watched in awe

Shalom Jerusalem
Messiah will come
He wiped away your tears and pains
Rejoice Daughter of Zion

Shalom Jerusalem
He's deep within your walls
Yeshua will return to reign
In majesty and power

I behold a people
Who are waiting for their Lord
For He will come with trumpets sound
As nations watched in awe

Shalom Jerusalem
Messiah will come
He wiped away your tears and pains
Rejoice Daughter of Zion

Shalom Jerusalem
He's deep within your walls
Yeshua will return to reign
In majesty and power

Then we see
The Son of God
Descending from the clouds
He will be a radiant light shining glorious and bright
on New Jerusalem

Shalom Jerusalem
Messiah will come
He wiped away your tears and pains
Rejoice Daughter of Zion

Shalom Jerusalem
He's deep within your walls
Yeshua will return to reign
In majesty and power

This song reminds me that God is faithful and His promises stand forever.

One For Israel

I first encountered ONE FOR ISRAEL through a series of video testimonies of Messianic Jews meeting Messiah. The testimonies are now collected at https://www.oneforisrael.org/met-messiah-jewish-testimonies/

The way Jesus came to them was so touching, so compelling. One common theme was all the falsehood about Jesus and the New Testament that were taught to them. Many of them shared that reading Isaiah 53 from the Old Testament was the turning point.

I was surprised to find out that Isaiah 53 was never read in the synagogues. Most Jews do not know there is such a chapter in Israel.

4 Surely he has borne our sickness and carried our suffering; yet we considered him plagued, struck by God, and afflicted.
5 But he was pierced for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. The punishment that brought our peace was on him; and by his wounds we are healed.
6 All we like sheep have gone astray. Everyone has turned to his own way; and Yahweh has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isaiah 53:4-6 WEB
